In a video caught by TMZ, the boxing star said: “we’re gonna make it happen,” when asked about the unusual matchup that was originally set by the Rizin Fighting Federation promotion. Mayweather stated that the fight would only go down if the other party agrees that it will be a boxing exhibition with no kicking. “I’m moving around with the guy for nine minutes, and of course it’s gonna be the highest paid exhibition ever.” It seems that the “fight” in talks right now might just be a publicized training session between the two.
